WSOP officials made some big waves when they decided to offer an online bracelet event this year and are already tweaking the format.

Also, the oldest casino on the Las Vegas Strip will close in May.

WSOP Tweaks Online Bracelet Event

On July 2 the first ever online bracelet event will commence during the 2015 World Series of Poker.

Event #64, $1,000 WSOP.com Online No-Limit Hold'em, was scheduled to play down to heads-up with the final two players to return live on July 4 to play for the bracelets.

Those plans have now changed slightly as WSOP officials are looking to have the final table of six return to the Rio to play for the bracelet.

WSOP VP Seth Palansky told PokerFuse.com about the potential change, but this change has yet to be approved by the Nevada Gaming Control Board.

Should WSOP officials receive final approval for the change Caesars plans to issue a press release with full details. Regardless, the first online bracelet champion will be crowned at the 2015 WSOP.

Riviera Casino to Close May 4th

The oldest casino on the Vegas Strip will shut down in May to make room for a new business center.

The Riviera Casino officially announced on Wednesday that it would close its doors on May 4th at noon, ending a 60-year run in Las Vegas.

The casino broke ground back in 1954 and is one of the last "Old Vegas" casinos remaining in the city.

The property was sold last month to the Las Vegas Convention Center for $191 million and will be demolished to make way for a new business center.

The Riviera has been prominently featured in several Hollywood films including Casino, Ocean's Eleven, Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery and 21.
